The Greenes 4 x 8 raised bed is constructed of all natural North American cedar in the USA. The garden bed frame features a slide together installation that can be completed without any tools. Only a screwdriver is required to install the decorative caps onto the posts. Two of these raised beds can be stacked on top of one another to create a taller/deeper growing area.

What the reviewers said…
The best feature of this Greenes raised garden bed is the ease of the assembly. It can be put together in about 10-15 minutes, and the only tool required is a phillips head screwdriver that is used to attach the decorative caps. All of the side and end boards simply slide into slits in the posts. The ability to stack two beds is a nice feature, as it allows for growing certain root vegetables that benefit from deeper soil such as potatoes, carrots, and onions.
The boards that come in the kit are thin (about 1/2 inch) and because of this, they do have the tendency to bow. Some may be bowed before assembly, while others will bow after filling with dirt and being exposed to weather. The boards also have a very rough finish, and may contain splinters. Despite the lower grade of wood, functionality is still good, but it’s something to think about depending on your desired visual preference where the garden bed will be located.
Some reviewers have noted that the cedar fades to a light gray color over time, but this is normal for natural cedar, and an oil or stain can be used to prolong or change the color of the wood.
- Easy and quick to assemble
- Lots of space to plant
- Two kits can be stacked to create a taller/deeper raised bed
- Lower grade wood is thin and rough
THE BOTTOM LINE
If you’re looking for an easy, quick, and fairly low priced option to start a garden, and can look past some imperfections in the quality of the wood, the Greenes 4ft x 8ft raised garden bed is a solid choice.
